Civility! Immigration reform activists threaten payback; promise ‘constant confrontations’


According to the Arizona Republic’s Dan Nowicki, at a press conference Tuesday, members of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) threatened to seek retribution against Republicans who blocked immigration reform efforts this year.

“‘Persuasion only goes so far, and now, with Speaker Boehner casting doubt that he can actually deliver immigration reform, FIRM is switching tactics from persuasion to punishment,’ said Kica Matos, director for immigrant rights and racial justice at the left-leaning Campaign for Community Change.”

“So, let me just be clear about one thing: From now on, any lawmaker who does not support comprehensive immigration reform should expect relentless and constant confrontations that will escalate until they agree to support immigration reform.”
